Disguised remuneration (HMRC Guidance)– Aug 2018
Settling disguised remuneration tax avoidance schemes before the 2019 loan charge arises
HMRC have recently updated the payment terms for settling disguised remuneration avoidance schemes before the loan charge arises in 2019. Individuals with current year expected income of less than £50,000, who are no longer engaging in avoidance, can agree on an installment plan of up to 5 years without having to provide detailed supporting information when they settle with us before the loan charge. These terms are only available for settling disguised remuneration schemes ahead of the loan charge
Clients with higher incomes or those who need a longer period can still agree oninstallment plans but will need to provide more detailed supporting information.
For more information, HMRC has just published our latest Spotlight on Disguised remuneration: schemes affected by the loan charge.
You can still register your clients for settlement but you need to provide all of the information required by HMRC by 30 September 2018. Get in touch with your current HMRC contact or email us at:
email@example.com for contractor loan schemes
firstname.lastname@example.org for all other disguised remuneration schemes.
